Woman who accused Bob Dylan of sexual misconduct in 1965 drops lawsuit

The woman who blamed Bob Dylan or sexual assault on her in 1965, when she was 12 years old, she dropped her lawsuit over allegations that she had destroyed key evidence.

But the woman dropped the lawsuit on Thursday, a day after Dylan’s lawyers told the court she still hasn’t provided “dozens of critical emails we know exist,” even after being threatened with sanctions. according to billboard.

These emails reportedly contained discussions that cast doubt on her claims. Dylan’s lead attorney, Orin Snyder, also told the judge that there was reason to believe that the accuser had destroyed the messages in question, which Billboard pointed out was “a massive violation of the rules of the trial in any event.”

Initial reports of the lawsuit were met with skepticism by at least one Dylan researcher.

“This case is over. It’s outrageous that this was ever brought up at all,” Snyder said in a statement, calling the case a “lawyer-run scam.”

HuffPost contacted the accuser’s lawyers, but they did not immediately respond.
